Signed on to Twitter this morning to see tons of #wiredcamp tweets.
It’s an unconference thingy for public servants going on today in Toronto.
Lots of City of Toronto and ontario.ca public servants (and a few GoC’ers too!) looking at this Q:
“How do we re-imagine government and public service in the age of participation?”
There’s sessions happening on wiki collaboration, social networks, open data etc. etc. Fascinating stuff.
Participants are using the #wiredcamp hashtag. I’m following via the liveblog post here: http://technowonk.ca/2009/09/wiredcamp-liveblog/
Update 4.30 pm: things look like they are wrapping up for the day.
Notes from the various sessions have been captured on the WIREDcamp wiki.
One interesting development that I noticed coming of the session -the idea of a “Govloop north” – Govloop is an unofficial social network that was set up in the USA about a year (or so?) ago. It has really taken off. There is already canuck representation there, but we’re a fringe element there. So why not a Canadian-centric version?
It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
